Weekends come and go, and often I think “I should have spent it a bit differently”. Too often I find myself using the time to run errands, do the dreaded groceries and just odds and ends. Last weekend however, my friend Jed celebrated his 30th Birthday and his fiancé Lara, organized a surprise gathering at her place at the Vaal.

We arrived there around 3pm, and spent the afternoon and early evening under the willow trees by the river, sipping on some wine and snacks, and just having a laugh – it was bliss, and is definitely something I have promised myself to try and do more often because it really is good for the soul.

I thought I’d share some of the gorgeous pics we took that afternoon, and to highlight the fact that the Vaal is really such a beautiful getaway that is only situated an hour outside of the hustle and bustle of JHB. (Double check directions before you leave though – my GPS decided an hour was too short for us to drive, and wanted to take us on an extra 70km scenic route!)
